Dust off those golf clubs in the garage and take a sick day at the office: There is still room for about 10 golfers in the 13th annual "Classic Country" Mike O'Daniel Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit the boys of summer at Paul Richards Park.
This year's tournament begins with a 1 p.m. Monday shotgun start at the Old Brickyard Golf Course in Ferris. Entry is $100 per player and includes a cart, green fee and lunch.
The Waxahachie Indian baseball RBI Club hosts the tournament each October in memory of longtime KBEC personality and Waxahachie ISD athletics supporter, Raymond Michael "Mike" O’Daniel who died in 2006.
O’Daniel, who joined the staff of KBEC radio 1390 AM in 1985 as the anchor of the Saturday morning Classic Country Show, also worked with Ken Roberts on the Classic Country Coffee Cup morning broadcast, the Flea Market.
The broadcast team of O’Daniel and Roberts, known as the official voices of the Waxahachie Indians, was notorious for their quick-wit, love of sports, and kindness to their listeners.
Proceeds directly benefit WISD baseball, Historic Richards Park, The Mike O'Daniel Memorial Scholarship and The Dulin Brothers Memorial Scholarship.
"As always, the RBI Club is thankful for all of the community and alumni support," said RBI Club President Barry Navarro. "Without those donations and time, we wouldn't be able to provide scholarships to our seniors or keep Paul Richards Park one of the best in the state."
Navarro noted the RBI Club annual provides about five scholarships to Waxahachie seniors.
